If there’s one thing above all else you need and deserve from your electricity, it’s reliability. After the critical power grid failures in February of 2021, many home and business owners are even switching to solar power in the hopes of being prepared should that happen again, and MINT Solar is here to help. In addition to powerful solar technology, you will find that we carry state-of-the-art battery backup systems as well to help keep your lights on even when all other power sources cut out. Having a battery backup system really can offer you complete peace of mind.
Like any other battery, MINT Solar’s rechargeable backup battery systems act as a source of reliable power if/when your primary source of electricity suddenly runs dry. Battery backup systems, however, are large enough to keep your entire property running. Typically, solar companies install one solar power inverter, however at MINT Solar, we install microinverters with each solar panel to power your battery backup. By charging automatically when you do have power and activating instantaneously when you don’t, you never have to be concerned about unexpected interruptions of service for any reason. Plus, you can take advantage of the 26% solar tax credit (residential details or commercial details) when you invest in your new battery backup system.
Advantages of using microverters include:
- Higher yield: The output of string inverters is capped by the least-efficient panel in the string. In contrast, microinverters use a parallel circuit, so they aren’t limited to the least-producing panel.
- More accurate monitoring: Since microinverters are paired to individual or grouped solar panels, users have granular access to production monitoring per panel instead of the whole system.
- Easier expansion: Scaling up a photovoltaic system is as easy as adding one microinverter for every 1-4 new panels added to the system.
- Rapid shutdown: Microinverters can be rapidly turned off, which is an important requirement in new electrical codes in case of accident or urgent servicing situations.
- Longer lifespan: Microinverters can have up to 25-year warranties vs. 8-12 years for standard inverters, and we offer
